file/write-profile ... journal file
Hi, I am trying to write the temperature on several surfaces (surf1, surf2, surf3) into profile file (that exists). But it is not working ! What is wrong??? Marina

//file/write-profile yes surf1 surf2 surf3 temperature /

Error:GENERAL-CAR-CDR: Invalid argument [1]: improper list Error Object: #f

I know that something is missing between surf3 and temperature, but I don't know what !! I've tried with blank line ...

Re: file/write-profile ... journal file
This line is written like this

//file/write-profile yes

Re: file/write-profile ... journal file
when you want to give a null argument use () in fluent

so it would be ... surf1 surf2 surf3 () temperature

Re: file/write-profile ... journal file
Thanks zxaar for your help ! I have written a small shell script that generates a journal file for my whole simulation in one fluent session (I have two cases that exchange temperature and flux distribution ...). I 've tried what you said:

echo '//file/write-profile'

echo ' yes'

echo 'surf1'

echo 'surf2'

echo 'surf3'

echo '()'

echo 'temperature'

echo '/'

Error:GENERAL-CAR-CDR: Invalid argument [1]: improper list Error Object: #f ()

It doesn't work. I don't know what else to do ...

Re: file/write-profile ... journal file
put this line is j.jou, and run this journal:

file write-profile surf1 surf2 surf3 () temperature () y

This would work, because I just tried writing pressure as profile and it worked.
